The most important consideration doing this trip in February is planning 2-3 days ahead as you go to ensure that you get to a viable overnight spot before dark. That will mean some short mean some short mileage days at some points, or getting an early start some days to stretch out your daily progress.
This is particularly important in stretches that are narrow, obviously, because you canít just anchor
in the channel. And you donít want to b running the ICW in the dark unless youíre familiar with the stretch youíre on.
